Abstract:

"The distinguished Australian poet Peter Porter has produced a highly acclaimed and original anthology of Australian poetry written since 1945. His collection features the work of almost 130 poets from the generation of R.D. Fitzgerald and A.D. Hope (born before 1910) to poets such as Gig Ryan, Philip Hodgins, and Lionel Fogarty. With its plethora of new poets (the youngest was born in 1972), it updates any other anthology of Australian verse." "Peter Porter's editorial criterion in preparing this long-awaited anthology was simple: 'I sought any poem that struck me as outstanding, whether it fitted in with my own tastes or not.' He has avoided frequently anthologised poems and the imperatives of schools, movements, and cliques. Along the way, there are wonderful poems by the notable poets of the past half century, including Les Murray, Francis Webb, Gwen Harwood, Chris Wallace-Crabbe, David Malouf, Robert Gray, and Dorothy Porter."--BOOK JACKET.
